Warning! Spoilers below for Outlander!

Last time on Outlander, we saw what happened at Culloden and to Claire (Caitriona Balfe) after she went back to the 1940s through the stones. Jamie and BlackJack Randall (Sam Heughan, Tobias Menzies) found each other amongst the battle din, and savagely slashed at each other until they both fell. When Jamie awoke, BlackJack was dead and the British were stabbing the men that were still alive. Jamie was rescued for a very brief time with some other survivors, but the British found them and started killing them one by one. When it was his turn and he gave his full name, the man in charge could not kill him. He was the brother of the boy Jamie spared, john Grey and it was a debt of honor. Although no one believed he would survive the journey, Jamie made it to Lallybroch and his family.

Mad Men Roger Don Pete

Mad Men
Season 7 Episode 10 “The Forecast”
Directed by Jennifer Getzinger
Written by Jonathan Igla and Matthew Weiner
Created by Matthew Weiner
Starring Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, John Slattery, Rich Sommer, Aaron Staton, Kiernan Shipka, Kevin Rahm
AMC
Air Date: Sunday, April 19th, 2015, 10pm

It’s almost time to say goodbye to this exquisitely made period drama. There are only three episodes left til the finale of Mad Men. Before that happens though, let’s recap last week’s episode and review this week’s.

Don (Jon Hamm) had a rough time of it last week. Megan (Jessica Pare) flew in to negotiate divorce terms, and left with a million dollars (which he gave her), and all his furniture (which he didn’t). Well… that part was her angry mother. He found and lost his waitress. SHE rejected him because she must be bananas. Don stared with longing at the family picture Betty (January Jones), Henry (Christopher Stanley), and the kids made. A new photographer, Pima (guest star Mimi Rogers) scores with Stan (Jay R. Ferguson) but not with Peggy (Elizabeth Moss). Harry (Rich Sommer) is a sleazeball, expecting sex from Megan for help with her career, then bad mouths her to Don (who does not care) later. I wanted to kill Harry. The end of that episode with Don standing in the middle of his empty apartment was jarring.

The Returned 106-13

The Returned
Season 1 Episode 6: “Lucy”
Directed by Jennifer Getzinger
Written by Bronwyn Garrity
Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kevin Alejandro, India Ennenga, Sandrine Holt, Mark Pellegrino, Mat Vairo, Tandi Wright, Michelle Forbes, Leah Gibson, Aaron Douglas, Dylan Kingwell, Sophie Lowe, India Ennenga, Agnes Bruckner, Jeremy Sisto
A&E
Air Date: Monday, April 13th, 2015, 10pm

Let’s recap last Monday’s episode, before The Returned 1.6 “Lucy” review.

During The Returned 1.5 “Tony and Adam”, we finally discover the identity of the stabber – Adam (Rhys Ward). Tony (Aaron Douglas) had been covering it up until he finally covered Adam up by burying him alive. But Adam’s back and the stabbing has resumed, however Tony’s different. He was eaten up with guilt at what he did and confesses to Adam. Needless to say that was not taken well.

Camille (India Ennenga) is now hanging out with Lena’s (Sophie Lowe) gang as a “cousin.” Lena runs out of the hospital to confront her in the bar, but ends up looking like a crazy in a hospital gown with a wicked looking open wound on her back. She passes out in the woods and Adam’s face looms over her.

The Returned
Season 1 Episode 5: “Tony and Adam”
Directed by Jennifer Getzinger

Let’s recap The Returned 1.4 “Victor” before getting to this week’s review. There will be spoilers for both so be warned!

Last week we got a glimpse into how little Victor (Dylan Kingwell) died 29 years ago, a result of a home invasion. One of the intruders tried to hide him and make him feel better, “sing a song inside your head,” to no avail. Julie’s (Sandrine Holt) neighbor ends up brutally dead. What does Victor have to do with it? She finally agrees to turn Victor over to Nikki (Agnes Bruckner), who brought him to Peter’s (Jeremy Sisto) community center. Annie (Michelle Forbes) also finds sanctuary there. Lena (Sophie Lowe) passed out and ended up in the hospital, dying we think, from a growing gash in her back that mirrors Camille’s (India Ennenga) death blow. Jack (Mark Pellegrino) is taken in as a suspect in the stabbing of Lucy (Leah Gibson). Rowan (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) hides Simon (Mat Vairo) in the attic. Unbeknownst to her (but not for long), Tommy (Kevin Alejandro) has cameras all over the house and witnesses her romp with Simon. She doesn’t seem to be horrified that he found out, just that he’s been spying on her.
